Diaper Cakes!

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
My SIL is having twins in December. I'm giving her a baby shower this Saturday and I've completed one of the two diaper cake centerpieces.

This is the first one and I've got to give most of the artistic ability to my good friend Donna. I tell her what I'm visioning and buy all supplies and she does the magic!





I will post the second cake as soon as we have it finished.

Susan, that is where I got my idea. From you.

The second cake is done.



Both cakes together.

I did a diaper cake for a friends baby shower - it was so much fun to make, and she had a great time "unwrapping" all the diapers to see what was in them (and yes - they were nice presents, not smelly ones!).

Mine wasn't as fancy though!

Sarah, I didn't even think to hide things inside the diaper! What a cool idea. All of my stuff is on the outside.

Out of 3 kids I had one baby shower and I got one of those fun little diaper cakes too!! I didn't take pictures but it was neat, and the diapers come in such handy!!

Another good idea to try is to make the daddy have a diaper party! The daddy invites all his friends over for a few drinks to celebrate and the friends each have to bring one pack of diapers! It doesn't matter what size the diapers are because they'll get used either way! It kind of gets the dad involved since they aren't allowed at the baby shower!!

Dont forget to do the name that poop game! Thats so much fun! Gross, but fun! Of course my SIL had to smear the baby food all over the diapers and then we had to guess! Then we had to diaper a teddy bear blind folded and see who could do it the fastest.... I won! I did it in 7 seconds!

Have fun and good work putting it together!!

Those are so cool! I am embarrassed to say that I bought one for a friend's bridal shower back in January. I wanted to make one but just didn't have the time. It was a Bloomer's Diaper Cake. It was the centerpiece on one of the tables (I put it on a glass cake stand) and then a gift too. I really wanted the yellow one that they make but the store only had pink. It was cute though!

It was kind of a last minute decision We'd bought face washers, dummies (pacifiers), and a bunch of little things, then decided it would be fun to "wrap" each little thing, so one diaper had one face washer, or one link to a toy (you know those big links - we separated them all so she had to put it back together ).

I enjoyed making it, plus I knew my friend Donna couldn't resist getting her hands involved once I explained the the concept. She's amazing when it comes to artsy stuff like that. Your diaper cake was our inspiration.

We ended up using 156 diapers. Ours just kept growing.

I must ask my niece if she ever used any of the baby grows, mittens etc... that were in it, because i remember she said on the night "That's too nice to open"

Very cute.

I've never heard of a "diaper cake" before. At first when I saw the thread I though it was an actual cake in the shape of diapers. And when I saw the picture, that's what I still throught it was. Fondant wrapped around cake logs! LOL

But now I see it's just rolled up diapers stacked to look like a cake. Very unique.
